What is Dual Credit?

Dual Credit programs at the Waterloo Catholic District School Board are ministry-approved programs that allow students, while they are still in secondary school, to take college or apprenticeship courses that count towards both the Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) and a post-secondary certificate, diploma, degree or a Certificate of Apprenticeship.

Students may earn credits towards their secondary school diploma through courses delivered at Conestoga College. Students may earn up to four optional credits through these college-delivered courses.

★ Dual Credit is one of many experiential learning opportunities offered by WCDSB. To learn more about experiential learning at our school board, visit el.wcdsb.ca.
